We are Bluegreen Owners. We happened upon this location, which is close to home but far enough to be a vacation. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The hotel has a great location and we had a great time. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Thanks for a great time.

I travel about 15-20 times a year on business and have stayed in all different types of hotels. I rate them on the number of stars and don't expect the same type of service from a 2 star as I do from a 5 star. There are many hotels in the general area and this is one of the nicer... More

I made two reservations for this Hotel: one for five nights (november 8th-13th) and one for two nights (14th-16th). I had to move to Baltimore via plane, and I asked to leave a piece of baggage at Hotel Blake (eventually available and willing to show contents, for safety reason). I asked for this service, but at the front desk I... More

Dear Matteo, Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at our hotel. While heightened security measures have lead us to form a general policy of not holding bags overnight, we do make exceptions and should have done so in your case. Though the bellman may not have felt the responsibility to make... More

We recently booked a package through Porter Escapes and stayed at Hotel Blake! All the staff were extremely pleasant from the bellman to the front desk and cleaning staff. Smaller hotel which makes it more cozy and not feel like a convention hotel. You are a street over from State Street where there are great shops literally at your door... More

I really loved my stay at Hotel Blake. Everyone was friendly and accommodating, from the doormen/greeters to the front desk staff, to the engineer who came to repair my door, to the guy who answered the phone at Meli Cafe to take my room service order. As soon as I got into my room, I realized that the lock on... More

I booked Hotel Blake on Hotwire to get a good price at a boutique hotel rather than the Embassy Suites my company likes me to use. Overall I was pleased with my stay. The employees were nice and the room was clean and comfortable (and enormous). Hotwire placed this hotel in the Loop but if you're familiar with Chicago you'll... More

Had a great stay at Hotel Blake! The rooms were very spacious and we loved the large windows. The staff was extremely friendly! They seemed like true ambassadors of Chicago. Meli Café, the restaurant, was perfectly convenient for breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food and atmosphere was for dinner as well!

The hotel appears nice and is in a fairly safe area of Chicago. It is in average to good condition. The main thing I came away with is their very poor customer service. No one responds to requests made, being very indifferent. Even the manager--if he is still there--did nothing to respond to my requests. So even if this hotel... More
